Can I Go For A Mommy Makeover After Childbirth?

by Eternelle Aesthetics Plastic Surgeon In Hyderabad

Pregnancy and breastfeeding bring in an abundance of new feelings and the joy of creating your own family. But it comes with unwanted physical changes in the body such as the appearance of stretch marks, hanging lower belly, enlarged breasts, and unattractive fat pockets. Lifestyle modifications such as having a proper diet and strenuous workouts alone may not be sufficient to alleviate these concerns.


The solution for them is a mommy makeover. This article by mommy makeover surgeon at Eternelle Aesthetics, provides information on everything one must need to know about Best Mommy Makeover In Hyderabad and answers one of the most asked questions: Can I go for a mommy makeover after childbirth? Read on for more details!

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a single-stage procedure involving a conjunction of personalised aesthetic techniques to restore, reshape, and contour the different body parts that have experienced dramatic changes after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. While deciding the best procedure, different factors need to be considered. This includes placement of incisions, desired level of restoration, and type of implant used.  

What concerns can mommy makeover address?

Mommy makeover surgery is performed to treat the following aesthetic issues after childbirth:

  • Breasts that are out of proportion with the rest of the body and cause backache

  • The loose skin of the abdomen with stretch marks

  • Fat deposits on the waistline that give undefined looks

  • Fat dropping over a depressed scar caused by C-section delivery

  • Undesirable fat deposits in sites like love handles and saddlebags

  • Sagging, uneven, and less fuller breasts with drooping nipples and stretched areolas

  • Typical signs of ageing in the face, neck, and around the eyes

  • Loose vagina after normal delivery.

What happens in a mommy makeover surgery?

Mommy makeover encompasses a combination of popular plastic surgeries such as:

  • Breast augmentation- During pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman experiences changes in her hormone levels and body weight that lead to the expansion of the breast's skin and the appearance of slightly deflated breasts. Breast augmentation using silicone or saline implants can help increase the fullness and size of the breasts and even bring them symmetry.


  • Breast lift- Pregnancy, nursing, ageing, or dramatic weight loss can cause breasts to sag and lose their youthful looks. A breast lift can help alter the breast size, elevate drooping breasts, and help women achieve attractive and proportional breasts in combination with breast reduction or breast augmentation procedures.


  • Tummy tuck surgery- Pregnancy leads to considerable weight change over 9 months. There is an expansion of the linea alba- a connective tissue structure running through the middle of the six-pack muscle. A tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty can help address this issue. It involves the removal of the extra skin and the underlying fat tissues from the belly area as well as tightening of the fascia. It even helps get rid of the prominent stretch marks on the tummy.


  • Buttock or gluteal augmentation- Pregnant women have larger, flabbier, or flatter butts. However, after giving birth to a child, their formerly pert backside tends to have deflated buttocks. A buttock augmentation can help improve the contour, shape, and/or size of the buttocks. It is performed using autologous fat grafts, buttock implants, or sometimes a combination of the two.


  • Liposuction- Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical option that helps get rid of extra, unwelcome fat pockets lying between the skin and muscles. It is commonly performed to eliminate fat from a woman’s abdomen, upper arms, thighs, back, or knees while tightening the skin after she has a baby. It can help improve overall body contours and the way the mother looks and feels.  


  • Vaginal rejuvenation surgery- Also referred to as female genital rejuvenation, this surgery helps tighten the vagina and make it more appealing following vaginal delivery. For reshaping the vulva and labia of the vagina, vulvaplasty and labiaplasty are performed accordingly. These surgeries help restore soft tissue structures of the vagina that have led to distress and inconvenience.


Face and neck-related procedures- Women during pregnancy after childbirth may experience many skin woes ranging from pigmentation and puffy eyes to loss in facial definition and enlarged nose. Laser skin resurfacing, facials, dermal fillers, and chemical peels are some non-surgical options to treat aesthetic skin issues caused by pregnancy and childbirth.

Who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover in Hyderabad is a highly personalised surgery that women take over to fulfil their desire to get their pre-pregnancy figure back. A woman may hold candidacy for mommy makeover only if:

  • She is physically and mentally healthy

  • She maintains a healthy body weight

  • She no longer has plans of childbearing

  • She holds a positive outlook and reasonable expectations from the outcomes of her mommy's makeover

  • She is not a smoker.

How soon can I undergo a mommy makeover after childbirth?

  • It’s best recommended to wait for 6-12 months following childbirth to receive a mommy makeover. The exact time to wait for a mommy makeover is decided by several factors including:

  • The procedures you have selected: For instance, if you have chosen breast surgery, then you would have to wait for at least 6 months after you have stopped producing breast milk so that the breast tissues and skin get enough time to stabilise. In the case of body contouring procedures such as liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), you would have to wait for at least a year. In a year after your child's birth, the changes in your skin’s elasticity as well as the abdominal wall will all get settled.

  • The nature of your pregnancy: C-section or normal vaginal delivery

  • Whether or not you want to get pregnant in the future: A mommy makeover is suggested only when you have decided to stop having children. This ensures that you enjoy all the physical and emotional benefits of the mommy makeover surgery.

  • How you are impacted by the rigours of motherhood

  • Whether or not you have chosen to breastfeed.

Having a mommy makeover too early following childbirth can have a negative impact on your body. That’s because, in the first year after childbirth, you will experience fluctuating hormones, changes in your skin’s elasticity, weight changes or changes in body fat deposits, and more.
